Why Palestinians Love Baby-Killers

Via David "One should speak only good about the dead.  OK.  He's dead.  Good."

  • Samir Kuntar murdered four Israelis. One of his victims was a four-year-old girl, Einat Haran. Kuntar smashed her skull. Kuntar was killed this week in Syria while helping President Bashar Assad commit war crimes against his own citizens.
  • Senior Palestinian official Sultan Abu Al-Einein evidently believes that murdering Jews is not a "despicable crime," but killing an arch-terrorist such as Kuntar is a "despicable crime."
  • When the Western-backed Palestinian Authority openly endorses terrorists and names streets, squares and schools after them, Palestinian leaders are sending a message to their people that murdering Jews is a noble and dignified act. This show of solidarity with a baby-killer is the direct result of ongoing incitement against Israel and Jews in mosques, the press and social media in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
  • In this sick, twisted society that the Europeans have bought and paid for, anyone who murders Jews is considered a role model. Anyone who supports peace with Israel is denounced as a "traitor."


  1. You probably won't care about the details, but...
    ALL the media accounts include the gory details, as you did, that he PERSONALLY bashed in the heads of Jewish children during a terrorist attack in Israel, some 30 years ago, when he was 17....
    not a single journalist bothered to report that FIVE YEARS AGO, the leading Israeli Jewish police officer and psychologist who repeatedly interviewed/counseled this terrorist for YEARS AND YEARS, said that the terrorist did NOT DO THAT.
    He believes that wild gunfire from the Israeli military forces killed them instead.....
    ""We turned Kuntar into God-knows-what - the murderer of Danny Haran and his daughter, Einat. The man who smashed in the girl's head. That's nonsense. A story. A fairy tale. He told me he didn't do it and I believe him. I investigated the event within the framework of the next book I am writing, about hostage-taking incidents. As far as I am concerned, it was no more than a newspaper report. I sat with him; he was very intelligent. He was a squad commander at 17. He told me that his motive for infiltrating Nahariya was to take hostages. He said [his organization] knew that would both humiliate Israel and get them media publicity.
    "He told me: 'If I had wanted to kill Danny and his daughter, I would have shot them in the house. I took them to the boat because I wanted hostages. I had no interest in hurting them. After I got them into the boat, wild gunfire started and I went back to help my squad on the shore. Danny, the father, kept shouting, "Stop firing, you crazy people." He and his daughter were found shot in the boat. I was on a small rise, shooting at your forces, and the boat was 20 meters away in the water, with Danny and the girl.'"
    So you say that Kuntar did not murder Haran and his daughter?
    "That is what he says, and in my opinion there is support for the fact that they were killed by fire from the Israeli rescue forces. You can accuse him all you like, but it was obviously the rescue forces that opened fire...."
    TO BE PERFECTLY CLEAR: yeah, he was a "terrorist", but that term always has a slippery definition anyway.
    Yes, if you are "kidnapping" civilians, and the "good guys" accidentally kill them while trying to kill YOU, then yes, "you" are still to blame.
    But I'm ONLY talking about how all journalists are repeating the "legend" that he PERSONALLY murdered a child and the father, when the highest-ranking Israeli Jewish police officer (and IDF combat veteran) who interviewed him for DECADES says that he doesn't believe that happened.
    I found this article in literally three seconds on Google. It was published FIVE YEARS AGO, and yet not a single mainstream "news" organization could bother to mention this.....
    I know, I know, most of you are screaming: "F*ck that Muslim terrorist! I'm glad he's dead!!!"
    And I don't disagree with you.
    I'm just saying: back when I was a reporter, silly things like "facts" mattered..... Clearly not nowadays.
    All I'm saying is: that story has been called false by a very knowledgeable Jew with an impeccable reputation, and no dog in that fight. He's not a member of "Peace Now", or any left-wing "anti-Semitic" group, etc. He's one of the highest-ranking (former) Israeli Jewish police officers.
    But people keep posting it.
